I get this error after I put my hashed token into the username box. Does anyone know how to fix this?
This error you are seeing isn't actually an error. Let us explain: cryptostorm relies on a very precise choice of cipher suites to provide protection against known attack vectors using the best-tested open cryptographic primitives. This includes mandatory perfect forward secrecy via Diffie Hellman ephemeral discrete log asymmetric key exchange.
These suites are provided via the TLS protocol and underling cipher algorithms via OpenSSL (usually). Only the more current versions of these libraries support the cipher suites deployed by cryptostorm - in particular, DHE. These don't require the absolute most bleeding-edge versions of TLS or OpenSSL... but seriously old versions simply cannot provide the cipher algorithms necessary for cryptostorm's security model.
Put simply, if you upgrade your OpenSSL libraries this "error" will resolve and you will be able to connect
The mechanics for doing this upgrade vary by OS; on Debian Linux distros, for example, it's a simple "sudo apt-get update" generally. On other platforms, there's equivalent procedures.
We're happy to point you at the correct procedure, or the OpenSSL project team at http://openssl.org has all available libraries, source code, and resources available if you prefer to go directly to them.
This is one place where we made the decision to require a baseline level of crypto tools, rather than veering more towards easy compatibility. It is a bit of a hassle to get upgraded initially, but the OpenSSL libraries are also used by essentially all web browsers for SSL/TLS security layer... so upgrading will also get you vastly improved cipher protection for HTTPS "secure" web browsing, including perfect forward secrecy (PFS) on many websites. There is no other way to do this than to upgrade OpenSSL, no "shortcut" in other words.
If we can be of further assistance, please let us know!
